I bought this griddle to see how it would work on a Pellet Grill which is a indirect heat source.
I will post all my results on this thread.
As you can see the Box says fits all GAS GRILLS says nothing about any other cooker. Although they do make a round one for Webers. Its on their webpage.

I started out simple as I was grilling some brats, I figured why not try it out with some fried onions? I took the GMG up to 500 Degrees & after a few minutes after temp was reached I splattered some water on the Sizzle Q and it passed. It quickly went PSST

I took a long shot of my GMG Jim Bowie just to give you an idea of how much room this Pellet Grill has.

It did ok with the Onions.

I have a feeling this is going to add a whole new dimension to my outdoor cooking. So far I'll give it :thumbs up:

Beautiful morning! 60 ish sunny. Decided to go for some bacon, eggs, & hashbrowns.
It took a bit longer than I expected. But I think added to the problem as I didn't let the Sizzle Q warm up as I should of & the hashbrowns were frozen when I put them on. I put them on first. And I didn't let the pit settle. :exasper::exasper:

Again I had the GMG up to 500 degrees. Took almost 45 min yet well worth the effort. Very good breakfast. hash Browns were a bit chrispy, Just the way I like em!
Ya think I could get an accurate griddle temp if I layed the AW131 on it?
If I remember from YEARS ago from my burger flippin days a griddle temp should be around 375. Am I correct?

Nice breakfast Lou. Tell us about that bread. I feel sure it is not Sunbeam.

As to griddle temps, I think that depends on what you want to do with the griddle. Over easy eggs, prolly around 300, grilled sammies around 325, and a quick sear on a steak, likely more like 450.

I don't think the AW-131 is really designed to read that way. there are probes made to read griddles, they usually have a flat"lug" on the end that you put flat on the griddle.

An infrared gun would also be a good way to check it.

My kids love French toast.I sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the top.

Have you ever tried a little orange zest in with it?

Looks good Lou!:drooling:
Glad you are enjoying it!

What kind of bread is that? I have never seen sliced bread with such a big "head".

That is a large loaf of half wheat & half white. I get from a local Mom n Pop bakery here in Wausau. Its the only one left. Other than our grocery store bakery's

Well time for some Big Papa's garlic brocoli

Put it on as described only using the Sizzle Q instead of the forgmats Seemed to work pretty well.

Cooked for the 15 min & pulled it & cranked up JB to 450 & added the t-bones. When they were about done I put the brocoli back on for its sear.

The Brocoli was fantastic! Reminded me of stir fry brocoli.

Its been a FUN weekend cooking/experimenting. So far I feel the Sizzle Q is well worth the money. We do 90 percent of our cooking outdoors any way. this is a neat addition!
